This film takes you back to 19th century Brazil. The dead main character guides us through several periods of his life with a subliminal humor. He admits some secrets he did not dare to tell anybody during his lifetime. In this, I really got to like the leading character. The cast for this rather episodical movie was very convincing and well chosen. But, while drifting through the story, I had expected to get to any sort of a climax at some point. Unfortunately, there was none. Nonetheless, I left the cinema quite amused. Nice to see, if you like old costumes and an easy story. I give 7/10.
